Olifants Rest Camp offers the most breathtaking river views similar to that of Letaba. A delightful restaurant, cafe and verandah sit on top of a cliff and offers views over the grasslands towards the Lebombo and with Olifants below.
Olifants consists of 3 ecosystems so game sightings are excellent. At the N'wamanzi waterhole you will notice the transition between the grasslands to the south, the Mopaneveld to the north and the riverine forest of the Olifants River. This is a good picnic spot, but keeps an eye out for scavenging baboons.
The drive south of Olifants Rest Camp following the Olifants River past Balule camping and caravan site offers great views and the possibility of seeing a towering Elephant cooling down in the river beds. Giraffe, Zebra, Impala and Buffalo are seen roaming around at the waterhole at Bangu on the Old Main Road to Satara (S90).
